Planck’s Poached Egg

  The famous German physicist Planck had always had a strong interest in music before going to university. From a very young age, he was able to play the piano and organ as a professional musician. He likes Schubert’s “Lullaby”, “The Beautiful Mill Girl”, Brahms’s Violin Concerto, and Bach’s “Matthew Passion”. For Planck, who was very strict in his family, well behaved and meticulous, music was the only place where he could indulge his feelings and make his thoughts unfettered.
  In 1874, at the age of 16, Planck graduated from high school. However, when choosing the direction of his future efforts, he was hesitant, because he felt that being a scientist might be more valuable than a musician, and finally he decided to give up music and study physics instead. However, because of his love for music, it was difficult for him to focus on physics all of a sudden. When he was studying physics, the notes were often fluttering in front of him, and he would hum a tune unconsciously.
  This made Planck’s mentor extremely annoyed. He warned Planck more than once that if he was absent-minded while studying physics, he would apply to the school leaders to expel Planck from the school. However, Planck still couldn’t control himself to think about music. In serious cases, he even wanted to give up the study of physics and return to the study of music.
  One day, Planck’s mother was cooking in the kitchen, she suddenly called out to Planck, in fact, Planck was sitting in the living room in a daze. Hearing the shout, Planck walked into the kitchen waking up from a dream, but he was still thinking about whether to choose music or physics. Planck’s mother said: “Child, you make me a poached egg!” Planck did not understand what his mother meant for a while, and asked: “What’s the matter with you, why did you suddenly ask me to make a poached egg?” Mother Said: “Actually, making poached eggs is also a knowledge, it is not as simple as your music and physics.” Planck said: “Well, I will make you a poached egg.”
  Just when Planck picked up the egg and was about to knock it on the stove, his mother stopped him and said, “Don’t break it.” Planck asked in puzzlement, “How can you make a poached egg without breaking the egg?” He smiled and said, “Since you understand this truth, why do you want to make poached eggs, but don’t want to break them?” Planck still didn’t understand what his mother meant. The mother continued: “Now, you have such an egg in your head, and that is music. If you don’t break it, you can’t make the poached egg of physics.”
  Planck suddenly realized that he finally gave up on music completely . With nostalgia, he devoted all his attention to the study of physics, and finally created the great achievement of quantum theory, which was a huge change in the history of physics, and ended the domination of classical physics. Planck won the 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics for the creation of quantum theory.

   Vitamin C: Can block the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines, such as salted, pickled and smoked foods containing nitrites (same as bacon, sausages, etc.), nitrites combine with amines in the stomach to form carcinogens Nitamine. In addition, it has an indirect antiviral effect, inhibiting the activity of a variety of viruses, including those that cause cancer. Vitamin C is a reducing agent, acts as an antioxidant, and works synergistically with vitamin E to fight cancer. It can improve the body’s immunity, and a lot of vitamin C can help the body to produce more interferon. The main source of vitamin C is fresh vegetables and fruits, such as tomatoes, cauliflower, bell peppers, dark leafy vegetables, bitter gourd. In addition, the content of citrus, grapefruit, apple, grape, kiwi and fresh jujube is relatively high.
   Vitamin A: It plays an important role in the differentiation, maturation and maintenance of epithelial cell integrity, so vitamin A is beneficial to prevent all cancers originating from epithelial tissues, including squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, etc. Vitamin A is mainly found in animal foods, such as sheep liver, beef liver, chicken liver, egg yolk and milk. Vegetables and fruits contain varying amounts of carotene and carotenoids, which are more abundant in dark green and yellow vegetables and fruits, which can be converted into vitamin A in the human body.
   Vitamin E: It can also block the production of nitrosamines in the gastrointestinal tract, has the effect of antioxidants, can improve the body’s immunity, and has the ability to prevent and resist cancer. Vitamin E is mainly found in vegetable oils, followed by eggs and grains. An adult supplement of 300 IU per day is sufficient. It should be noted that various vitamin preparations are also medicines. If additional supplements are required, there should be professional guidance from a doctor. It is not advisable to take them blindly to avoid adverse reactions.
